RUMOR: New Mustang GT Could Pack Nearly 500 HP

Previously, both derivatives saw a reduction in power after Ford was forced to comply with revised emissions legislation. While we can expect hybrid powertrains in the near future, the new Mustang will launch with revised versions of the current engines; the EcoBoost 2.3-liter and 5.0-liter V8. If the Mach 1 is to receive a power hike close to 500 hp, the regular GT will likely be pegged around the 470 hp mark.

This “evolution rather than revolution” ethos Ford has adopted extends to the exterior styling. Based on the image seen above, it’s clear to see the latest Mustang hasn’t changed much in terms of design. It’s certainly more modern, but Ford is smart enough not to mess with a successful recipe – after all, the Mustang is the world’s most successful sports car. The profile appears the same as well, but we can expect changes at the rear and inside, too.
